Been picking corn for high moisture ear corn don't have
much time between chores so today and yesterday used two
pickers and fill six wagons then haul them two or three at a
time back to grinder and silo. Hauled all six back today at
once. Looks neat I think.

it makes me cringe thinking of trying to keep tires on all those wagons without spending more than the wagon is worth, seems with my older equipment the tires are worth more than the equipment, great pics and thanks for taking the time to share

many years back i did something close to that. we were baling hay for a guy about 10 miles from where i was farming and when done i hooked my 450 to the 269 N h baler then the three kicker wagons and a 40 foot elevator behind the last wagon , I was about five miles from the farm when i met a new friend driving a white Ford with Fancy lights on the roof , he did not see the humor in my bright idea he gave me a written warning for over length and explained to me that only TWO wagons behind a tractor and only one behind a truck. Two year later the same bear stopped me for exceeding the SMV speed limit while pulling two gravity wagons loaded with ear corn I was told that with a SMV sign on a wagon was 25 MPH not the 45 that i was doing With the oliver 88 with a 67 Ford 390 4 bbl and he also said something about the exhaust being to loud from the headers with no mufflers. I thought it sounded really great pulling the hills . Some people have no sense of humor.

Been a long time since I saw a wagon train, used to see 3 wagons sometinmes but they made that law back in the 1970's perhaps, 2 hitch pins at most?

Couple years ago a fella was bringing 3 wagons in to the elevator - he was combining corn next to the elevator, and didn't have to take public road, the 3 wagons and tractor _just_ fit on the semi scale. These were the 600 bu wahons, he got real close to the 120,000 scale limit.

Neat pics.

Great pics, you wouldn"t happen to be around Apalachin would you? I saw an International and a JD that looked alot like those two, hauling silage wagons a couple weeks back. They were staging at the same place we were parking out our construction equipment. Off of 17c.

cjd,
Neat photos.

How in the world does one turn a corner with SIX wagons in tow? I think you should have shot some video.

only 2 wagons behind the tractor? oops? I was pulling 3 behind the 1086 for six miles the last few days to finish and fill a bin. I thought it was 1 behind a truck and up to 4 behind a large tractor?

Only 2 implements behind a tractor, was supposed to be only one but then you could not pull a wagon behind a baler or picker so was uped to two implements. still only one behind a truck.
